OMG ouichouichouich
I've had a chip for a while and wanted to get more performance. I was recommended to port and polish the intake and exhaust. We found out they used abrasive material to do it like gritty sand. So I got with my friend that tunes Hondas and we decided to try it ourselves. We got a bag of sandblasting sand and hooked up into the intake and started the car. We had to hold the gas so it would run. He wanted to let the engine suck in the sand through the intake so it would port it out and then push it out the ehxaust so it would port the exhaust manifold.
I was worried that it might cause problems but he figured it'd be OK as long as we didn't make boost and it get sucked in the turbo. After running the car and letting it suck in sand we got about half way through a 25 lb bag. The check engine light was on and the engine was bucking and kicking and sounding really weird. We stopped and hooked the car back up normal and took off the sand supply. We tried to start it again and it was really hard. Once started it couldn't idle and kept making weird noises. We took it out and drove it and it started to make scraping and knocking noises.
Help! Can anyone tell me what to do! My buddy only does Hondas so he doesn't know much about Audis.

yeah, pretty sure it's a joke.

I've seen that exact same message posted elsewhere a few years ago, complete with pictures of the bags of sand they used.

It's still funny to see some peoples reaction to it.
Funny indeed :D
Why would anyone do that? It's a proven FACT that a vtec sticker adds at least 30hp and a NOS sticker can get you up to 100 TO THE WHEEL.
Holy sh!t. I'm at work and was reading it quickly so I went right to the text and thought you were serious until I got to the turbo part. I was thinking, "Kelleyo is absolutely insane!" That's funny.
This went around on most of the car forums a year or two ago. It's pretty retarded.
WTF!!! :eek:oohhh:

who needs "extrude honing" to polish their intakes :hihi:
He he. That is pretty funny. :haha: At first, I thought you were talking about some new detailing technique regarding polishing your cars pipes for maybe a weekend show.

Figured something might be up with the OP only having 3 posts. Kind of reminds me of the guy on the Vette forum that had the DEI idea with the amount of responses to the post.
